New Mail Basic Beta

Welcome to our Yahoo Basic Mail feedback forum! This is a place for you to help shape the new Yahoo Basic Mail experience. We review the most popular, feasible ideas from this forum to make positive changes to your Yahoo Mail.

Basic Mail provides base functionality like reading and writing messages, but does not include many of the advanced options. To use these features, we recommend upgrading to full-featured version of Yahoo Mail.

  4. Don't force your new version on users ... give us the option of keeping the old version.

    Some users might prefer the new look, but let us decide for ourselves ... don't force it on us.

  5. HATE new display!

    New display is awful. Without things in bold, it is much harder to read! (This is a stupid change.) Also, the buttons for actions (like "delete") are further away on the page, making it more of a chore to move to. (Also LESS EFFICIENT.) Please stop changing the display format. You seen to always come up with something WORSE than before!

  11. Hate the new classic mail look. Nothing was wrong with the old one. The new one is very hard to read. Please go back!

    Yahoo keeps changing their look making things more and more illegible with goofy colors and icons. The latest change is to the classic email look which I hate. I stopped using the main Yahoo page and it's related sites a while back because of this. Now, I am about to dump Yahoo mail altogether. The new mail is even worse. They can disappear as a company for all I care at this point.

  16. Please keep Classic Mail the way it was!!! There is absolutely NOTHING to change.

    Classic Mail has already worked for Many Many years and there was absolutely NO Need to change the layout for classic mail. Based off how many other Yahoo users have commented/posted, you should have Never changed the layout of Basic/Classic Mail.

    We all as Yahoo users should have the option to choose if we want the new layout or the Old layout. No one should ever be forced to become accustomed to a layout that they not only hate, but aren't comfortable with either. Please revert back to the Old layout and please try not to be like hotmail/outlook because…
